An odd sight!

I was in the local supermarket this afternoon when I saw a woman with curlers in her hair!!! I could not work out whether she had forgotten, couldn't care less or simply had such self-confidence that it didn't matter.

She appeared to be with what looked liked her daughter and grandson, so I reasoned that if she had forgotten, her daughter would have told her. Unless of course, she had such a mental health problem that telling her that she had curlers in her hair would have caused such an outcry that it was best to leave it well alone.

I was not the only one who noticed though - there were several people whispering to each other as she walked past them in the shop, you could see the raised eyebrows and funny looks that everyone gave each other.

What was she thinking? Was she about to go to a celebration later and simply had to go to the shops and decided that she would leave her curlers in and take them out when she got home? If that was the case, I would have thought that she'd wear a headscarf.

This one will remain a puzzler I think, I am never going to know the reasoning behind this one.

Head scarf?! Then you'd just have thought she has a lumpy head!

You know what's odd? There's always *something* in your posts that I feel compelled to reply to.
